Enterprise Grade Endpoint Protection

Enterprise Grade Endpoint Protection is not a “one and done” event.

Enterprise Grade Endpoint Protection

Many IT professionals place their cybersecurity focus on servers and data centers, but they are leaving one area wide open for attackers to infiltrate – endpoints. These devices are responsible for 70% of breaches so they are definitely not out of mind when a malware attack hits the business.

What are endpoint devices?

Any device that can connect to the central business network is considered an endpoint. Endpoint devices are potential entry points for cybersecurity threats and need strong protection because they are often the weakest link in network security.

Endpoints can range from the more commonly thought of devices such as:

  • Laptops
  • Tablets
  • Mobile devices
  • Smart watches
  • Printers
  • Servers
  • ATM machines
  • Medical devices

What is the difference between network security and endpoint security?

As the name suggests, endpoint security is all about securing processes, business data, and sensitive information stored or passed through the devices connected to your network. Only after you have secured the endpoints, which are the most vulnerable part of your business, should you work on protecting your network as a whole so that cybercriminals and malware can’t get in.

Endpoint protection vs. antivirus: What’s the difference?

The role of antivirus (AV) software is to detect and remove malware, which can include ransomware, trojans, viruses and keyloggers. AV represents only a small component of your organization’s security solution.

Endpoint protection, on the other hand, includes not only antivirus detection but also comes in the form of firewalls, anti-malware software, IDS (intrusion detection systems), data loss prevention, and sandboxing (testing devices and patches in a non-production environment). Endpoint security takes into account the entire security infrastructure.

We utilize a comprehensive cloud based security solution designed to meet the needs of small to medium sized businesses, protecting your endpoint systems including desktops, laptops and file servers, with advanced technologies for antivirus, antispyware, firewall, and host intrusion prevention. Our solution enables management of security requirements via a single Web-based console and does not require additional hardware or management software.
